The Skateboard Academy

The Skateboard Academy educates and engages the community through the lens of skateboarding. We focus on Community Events, Educational and Vocational Workshops and Edutainment performances to outreach and sustain our venture. The lessons learned from skateboarding can be utilized for success on and off the board, classroom and in life.

The biggest thing I need right now is access to marketing, sales and working capital.
